Literacy night will begin with a presentation by Bradd Parton, an author from South Carolina, in the multipurpose room. Mr. Parton developed his own illustration style called Alpha Sketch where all the pictures are made from using the 26 letters of the alphabet only one time. He has also written a custom book for Yadkinville elementary that will be sold as a fundraiser for the media center. You will be able to see his work and place an order for the custom book that he has written. Teachers will have booths set up around the room that you can visit as well. They will share strategies and take home activities that can be done with your children to help increase literacy (the ability to read and understand information). You may just see some Letterland characters floating around that would love to have their picture made with the younger kids. Supper will be provided for participants following these events in the cafeteria. This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your family to enjoy a fun filled evening while learning more about literacy. Please be sure to RSVP so we will know how many to plan for in regards to supper. Forms were sent home with children that you can use to RSVP by October 11.
